The continued safety, well-being, and success of our students, teachers, staff, and community has always been our top priority as we navigate the complex and evolving coronavirus crisis. To that end, our comprehensive task force has outlined a school reopening plan that includes a return to full-time in-person instruction for students in grades PK-5, 6, and 9, and an alternating schedule with a combination of in-person and synchronous real-time online learning for students in grades 7-8 and 10-12.

Mission: To afford every student the ability to achieve at high levels in order to have every opportunity for success.
Focus: Indian Peaks has an instructional focus of Science, Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) along with Early Transitional Bilingual Instruction. The STEM Instructional Focus is the foundation of the high-quality research based instructional programming that is offered to all students PreK through grade five. The natural convergence of the sciences, partnered with literacy, provides students with an outstanding foundation of essential skills while integrating the development of problem solving skills, critical thinking skills, communication skills and the ability to collaborate to enhance learning.
Our Early Transitional Bilingual Instruction offers Spanish literacy instruction K-3rd grade to students whose dominant native language is Spanish. Students receive literacy instruction in Spanish, which includes reading and writing instruction. They also receive 60 minutes daily of English literacy instruction, affording them the necessary skills to be successfully bi-literate in Grade Three. Math, Science, and Social Studies are taught in English with Spanish support as necessary. Our goal for our bilingual instruction students is that they will be successfully bi-literate by third grade. Teachers provide differentiated, rigorous instruction to all students in order to prepare them for continued academic success.
Achieving Academic Success: In partnership with our community, Indian Peaks is committed to give every student the ability to achieve at high levels in order to have every opportunity for success. To achieve this, the school offers a wide range of learning opportunities that include:
